Understanding Revelation: Decoding the Bible’s Most Mysterious Book
The book of Revelation is the most mysterious book of the New Testament—and it’s often used to attack the Catholic Church.
Opponents of the Church claim that it is the “Whore of Babylon” and that the pope is linked to “the Beast” whose number is 666.
These staples of anti-Catholic apologetics have been used to pull countless Catholics out of the Church. Even Catholics who are secure in their faith often don’t know what to say when they encounter these claims.
In his DVD Understanding Revelation: Decoding the Bible’s Most Mysterious Book, Jimmy Akin unlocks the secrets of Revelation so that anyone can understand them.
It comes packed with almost two hours of eye-opening material that paints an entirely different picture of the book of Revelation and what it is all about, covering topics like:
- Why most of Revelation doesn’t deal with our future at all
- Who the “four horsemen of the Apocalypse” are
- How to understand the book’s “cosmic catastrophe” symbolism
- Who the Beast of Revelation really was
- What the meanings of 666 and the “Mark of the Beast” are
- What the Woman clothed in the sun refers to (more than you might think!)
- How to understand the Whore of Babylon and her opposite, the Bride of Christ
- When “the Millennium” takes place
- What the little-known “Middle Coming” of Christ is
The book of Revelation was meant to reveal God’s message to his Church, and in Understanding Revelation Jimmy Akin shows you how it does exactly that.
Very helpful and clarified many of my incorrect assumptions!
It’s very well explained. I truly love it. Jimmy Akin is Excellent!
Mind blowing! As a former Protestant, we were taught that all of Revelations was about the future. Jimmy demonstrates otherwise. For example, Jimmy touched upon the locusts that John had seen and how some believed it was an interpretation of helicopters. As a Protestant that’s what I was taught, but Jimmy clearly explains how that isn’t so. One of the highlights is when Jimmy explains with detailed proof of how the “mark of the beast” is a thing of the past. This was something that was ingrained and preached over and over again before I became Catholic that is was part of our future. Jimmy’s gift of teaching and intelligent approach helped me dispel a lot of misconceptions I had while making better sense of what Revelations is really all about! This is a great video for all to see!
A very well-done DVD. Jimmy Akin is well respected & this work only supports that respect. While it was no an extensive review of this most mystical Book of the NT, it covered well all the major elements.
